Tell the world:


Wildlife. Not entertainers.

We want a world where wild animals live in the wild where they belong. But one of the biggest barriers to this natural freedom is global tourism.

Up to 550,000 wild animals around the world are suffering at the hands of a cruel and relentless industry. Elephants are beaten and abused to be ridden. Tigers are chained in barren concrete cages so tourists can take selfies with them. Lions are torn from their mothers for a lifetime of captivity. Together we can stop this.
